Titan Model BS85 Simplex Strainers

Class 150# Cast Steel and 316SS Basket Strainers

 

Titan BS85 SImplex Basket Strainer 

Model BS85 simplex basket strainers are available in 2" to 12" sizes, with a bolted or swing-bolt "quick-opening" cover and have a drain plug.

 

How to choose between the Eaton, Keckley and Titan simplex basket strainers?

 

While comparing pricing and lead time is typically how many customers decide what to order, the flow coefficient (Cv) values should be compared from a performance perspective.

 

Basket strainers which have a higher Cv (flow coefficient) value begin with a lower differential (clean basket) pressure drop for a given flow rate and thus may not need to be cleaned as often.  Another way of looking at Cv values is that basket strainers having higher Cv values can handle higher flow rates at a given pressure.

 

Comparison of Cv Values for Eaton, Keckley and Titan Cast Basket Strainers

The Cv values are so close within the 1" to 6" sizes for these manufacturers that they will mostly perform the same, thus ergonomics, cost and lead time should be the deciding factors.  The 10" - 16" sizes favor Keckley from a lower initial pressure drop perspective.  All can be supplied with a tool-less quick opening style closure (clamp, swing bolt or knob).
